MASSACHUSETTS CREMATION SOCIETY 

Treasurer's Report for the Year Ending 
December 31, 1917 



Cremations fell off 15 during the year, but as 1916 showed an 
increase of 71 over all previous years the situation may be re- 
garded as satisfactory. 

The number of cremations at our crematory was 412, a de- 
crease of 15, as above; at Mount Auburn 354, the exact number 
which they had last year; at Springfield, 111., an increase of two. 
During the year Harmony Grove Cemetery in Salem, Massachu- 
setts installed a crematory and reports cremations of 21. This 
makes the total for Massachusetts for the year 898, comparing 
with 890 last year. 

The Treasurer's accounts show an entirely satisfactory con- 
dition of the Society and a strengthened financial condition. The 
account for operation shows a heavy increase, but this is prin- 
cipally due to repairs on retorts. The account for publicity 
shows an extraordinary increase, money well spent on a new 
pamphlet. Substantial depreciation charges have been made in 
addition to the above. While the usual dividend of 5% has not 
been earned on the face of the accounts there are ample profits 
carried over from previous years and the Treasurer recommends 
its payment. 

During the year 39 niches in the Columbarium were sold and 
Perpetual Care for 22 urns paid for as against 26 niches and 24 
urns in 1916.

The principal matter of interest which has come up during the 
year has been the question of fuel. The coal supply for this 
winter is provided for. The Treasurer has provided tankage and 
is purchasing the necessary machinery with which to burn oil 
under burners for heat. He also expects that this will make it 
possible to use in the retorts the less expensive heavy Mexican oil 
which is now coming into the New England market. On the other 
hand since the government seizure of all fuel oil the future is 
doubtful. At the time of presenting this report we have oil on 
hand for about 230 cremations. 

The condition with regard to the cost of living has been recog- 
nized by substantial bonuses to our faithful employees. 

The Treasurer's accounts have been audited as usual by Mr. 
W. D. Hutchins, an expert accountant. 

RICHARD W. HALE, 



Treasurer.

THE MASSACHUSETTS CREMATION SOCIETY 

Treasurer's Report for the Year Ending 
December 31, 1918 



The total number of cremations was 487 during the year and 
the largest month was the month of October in which 78 crema- 
tions took place. As the usual table shows, this is both our 
own largest year by far and the largest year for Massachusetts 
cremations. 

On account of conditions growing out of the war, it has 
been found necessary and just to increase both the wages of the 
Society's employees at the Crematory and the compensation of the 
Treasurer. The latter increase is occasioned by the increased 
volume of cremation business which is passing through the Treas- 
urer's office as well as by the general rise in clerical service and 
expenses. 

During the year we have installed apparatus for burning fuel 
oil under our boilers to make heat and steam. As soon as the 
oil experts can give us the necessary attention we expect to be 
able to use the cheaper Mexican fuel oils in cremation, thus 
having only one fuel and that one which is easily handled and 
satisfactory for all purposes. 

One of the events of the year was the legacy of five thousand 
dollars ($5,000) from the late Catherine C. Thomas. Plans are 
on foot for enlarging the crematory building to provide much 
needed additional offices and suitable rooms for receiving those 
who come to cremations, especially a much better ladies' retiring 



6 



room. We have also under consideration the installation of a 
suitable organ and the erection of a subsidiary building. Thus 
we can make good use of our profits and of Miss Thomas' 
generosity. 

Our total investments in United States bonds and securities 
now amount to $15,000. These include Liberty Bonds of the 
second, third and fourth issues, and Treasury certificates. 

The shareholders are urged to visit the crematory and inspect 
its processes, with or without notice. Improvements have been 
made in the uniforming of the staff and there is a constant attempt 
to improve every detail of the arrangements. 

The Treasurer's accounts have been audited by Miss Annette 
Crocker, an expert accountant. 

RICHARD W. HALE, 



Treasurer.
